The Museum of Byzantine Art will please culture vultures, while the Nautical Museum and The Museum of Zakynthos are must-visits for lovers of history. If you’d rather be lazing on the beach, you’re in luck – there are plenty to choose from, boasting golden sands and cool blue waters. Spend your time topping up your tan with a good book or head to one of the nearby beachside bars to linger over a cocktail or two. When the sun begins to fade on holidays in Zante Town, you’ll find plenty to do. While the nightlife is fairly low-key, this part of the island is famed for its mouth-watering offerings in restaurants and cafes, with plenty of opportunity to sample Greek cuisine.
